Given the depth at C, and the fact that Mac and Drouin are ahead in that regard... I think Monahan is going to have to blow Spott and co. away in order to get a spot.
I don't think Drouin makes it and it's time to get over the label of "draft eligible" for Monahan, he's the same age as Rielly, Dumba, Reinhart, etc. and has the same amount of junior experience. Just because he's a few months younger and hasn't been drafted by the NHL doesn't mean Hockey Canada is gonna cut him for being too young. He's a three year OHL veteran, that's plenty of experience. It's the 17 year olds who wear the face masks like Drouin and MacKinnon that get cut for being too young. Monahan could still get cut because of how stacked the centres are this year but it will not simply be because he's draft eligible like Seguin and RNH got cut in the past.
